Hi, did you get it going? It would be the reverse switch likely causing the problem. Sometimes a wiggle will get it working as long as the bike is in neutral. If that doesn't work check the reverse switch.

Take care.

he try the reverse switch could it be the neutral safety switch the neutral light wont come on on the dash and will not start
Expert:  Wayne S. replied 1 year ago.

It should start with the side stand up and the clutch pulled in even

if the neutral switch is faulty, try that and let me know.

This is a complicated circuit.

Here is a picture of the circuits involved, you have to check

at various points with a multimeter to see where the power is being lost.

Start with the fuses.
